Jan van de Cappelle: 'A Small Dutch Vessel before a Light Breeze'

Explore the paintings

The vessel in the centre, with a red and white ensign and flags, is a small Dutch transport vessel (possibly a 'wijdschip'). A ship with a red and white flag at the main is in the right distance.

This painting can probably be dated to the late 1640s or early 1650s.
